Yves-François Blanchet on Federal Response to COVID-19 – March 24, 2020

Bloc Québécois Leader Yves-François Blanchet speaks with reporters on Parliament Hill about the federal government’s response to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, including the government’s proposed emergency economic aid measures, which are set to be debated in the House of Commons. He comments on the delay of the debate as negotiations between the federal parties continue over the extent of taxation and spending power included in the legislation. The House has been briefly recalled to consider legislation to implement the proposed measures.
